    Default Surefire e2L on 14670? Or e2L AA?

    Hello,
    Since january i have been using a surefire e2L AA and i like it a lot. However it is a loooong light so i guess an e2L (2x cr123) should be a lot handier. The fact however that it should be run on two primaries is a real dealbreaker to me. so: can it be run on a 14670? And what are the results in that case?

    Thanks for helping me out.
    Kind regards,
    Joris

    It will run just fine on a single RCR. Output will be the same, just shorter run time.

    Hello,
    If I put the E2L AA head on a E1L body and power it with a RCR123, would it do any harm?
    I guess 2 lithium AA cells will give about the same voltage (under load) than a single 16340 cell, or am I wrong?

    Kind regards,
    Joris

    I would not do it. The E2L-AA head is specified for 2xAA cells (each cell @~1.5V is in total ~3.0V). The E1L head is also specified for 3V (1xCR123). Only the E2L (2xCR123) is specified for voltages up to 6V.

    A full 16340 cell has a voltage of about 4.2V. I would not try it out with my E2L-AA head (I have all three outdoorsman lights). The load of a Outdoorsman light is also not "very" high. This lights are designed for a longer runtime and a little less Lumens rate (~40-80 Lumens depending on the light) instead of a high lumens rate like a E1B backup with 110 Lumens.

    I'd choose the E2L (2xCR123) for using with 14670. I tired this with my E2L and this works without any problems. I have two 14670 cells and they work well with LX2, A2L, E2L.

    Still looking for Surefire G2 in Orange.
    If you have one you don't like please PM me.

    Thanks for the reply.

    When one uses a 14670 cell in an E2L, does the light shut off abruptly, or does it become dimmer with a long taper?

    Thanks for your insight,
    Joris
